Brake Cap ???? Gunsmith

I have decided (after much self debate) to take my .300 Win Mag on my upcoming moose hunt. I would prefer to get a cap made for my brake so I don't deafen the guide or my partner. Does anyone know how tough it is for a smith to make one? Any chance of getting one before September 10th? I live in Northern Butler County but work in both Sharon and Cranberry

Don't let our differences defeat us.

It is actually called a thread protector. I would think you could get one pretty quick.

Economy is the best first choice.
If you know the brand of brake, you can often times just order a "Thread Protector" from the company. Most brakes easily screw off so you can shift back and forth.

Just for your information,,,If you sight your gun in using the brake,,,and then deceide to take off and put your thread protector on,, the point of inpact will be different,,not much,,but it varies from gun to gun, but eneough that i would sight it in with one or the other,,.. You are only going to fire one or two shots at your game and i dont think your guide cares about that noise..

It only takes one shot! An your hearing can be messed up. I have a friend who owns a guide business and lost part of his hearing due to an in considerate client cracking around off close to him without ear protection.
.
I had a cap/protector made when I had my RUM brake installed. I zero'd with the brake and did load development with it, then rechecked with 2 or 3 rounds after the thread protector was on. I left it on when I went to Africa and they (guide/trackers)were glad I did. Although being the nice guy I am I took extra plugs for everyone anyways. You may have time to put them in so why not. But DEFINITELY wear the hearing protection every time you shoot with the break.
.
Be safe and good luck!
